Acoustic proportions defined by complex logarithms: The Difference Engine derives its name from the first mechanical calculating machine proposed by Charles Babbage in 1822, which can be considered the first computer created by men. Kurt Nimmo, the person behind Fosel, hints at the fact that the music on his latest release is computer-generated, stressing the man versus machine idiom. A monstrous machinery dominates the barely lit, dusty hall with its metallic wheels, columns and sector gears....

Having spent some time creating cover artwork for netlabel artists under the alias Synflict, Marco Cervellin and Olliver Wichmann decided to team up together for creating music together for a change. Initially based on some sound fragments lying around, the tracks quickly evolved to what has finally become Prismatine, their debut release as Synflict. The music features huge contrasts (consonance versus dissonance, attack versus decay) and pauses as a means to interrupt a continious flow and...

Stig Inge Oy from Poland incorporates acoustic instruments field recordings and post processed audio signals not commonly associated with music as primary sources for his close-in-the-box electroacoustic music , as he would call it. In the case of 39 68 99 09 , the first release for the Petcord netlabel, this equates to tension ridden cinematic soundscapes that confront listeners with gloomy feelings of despair. The title refers to years that Maciej Miskiewicz, the man behind Stig Inge Oy,...

Resonant, the latest album from Austrian artist Fabio Keiner, is a collection of electroacoustic works that have accumulated over the years. It therefore shows a certain degree of variety in sound, density and complexity, emphasising different timbres, pitches and variations on basic structures. This orchestration without an orchestra is effectfully interspersed with minimalist, almost fragment-like works or low key drones. Resonant as faint memories re-entering one's mind with familiar scents,...

Greg Surges, an US-based composer with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours in composition and music technology, creates both electroacoustic and contemporary classic works that incorporate improvisations, algorithms, instructions for sound manipulation and open forms with variable passages. An introduction to these concepts provides his first album for the Petcord netlabel, "Solid State" with three works, one of these in two different versions (hence the total of four tracks). Swarm...

Nanimo nai wakusei means "empty planets" in Japanese and is an apt description for key elements of Tim Salden's music as Osoroshisa . It reflects the width of uninhabited and lonesome worlds and how time becomes a secondary factor on an empty planet that lacks any point of reference for perceiving its continuous passage. In the broader sense, it may also refer to isolated persons living in a solar system of their own, without a way of taking notice of other worlds apart from theirs...

The latest release of Chilean composer René Muñoz Córdova on the Petcord netlabel , la arquitectura sónica de Amacelin & Luyelval , explores opposite approaches to music in two composotions that go by the name Amacelin and Luyelval. The first one, stretching over eight movements, takes a basic set of chopped samples from flute, strings, piaono and guitar and reassembles those in different ways. Reminiscent of classic role models, this could be labelled variations on a timbre, with the...

René Muñoz Córdova is a Chilean composer currently living in Spain, whose work combines electroacoustic abstraction with isolated elements from more conventional music genres and creates a new context for each. In Obras Musicales , his Petcord debut, deconstruction of organic sound sources contrasts with artificial vocoder and speech synthesis voices, post processed field recordings, feedback, stretched percussions and chopped samples of instruments. Emphasising the paradox as a normal...

At first, Austrian artist Fabio Keiner did not think of creating music himself before VST-synths and software based sound sampling technology became widely available. Encouraged by his music discoveries on the Internet he started experimenting himself, got hooked up and eventually developed an ideosyncratic adaption of generative music with at times gloomy sound characteristics. This originality makes it difficult to categorise Slow Motion (and other works of his): On the surface, there are...

Wacky Southern Current is Marco Cervellin from Italy who, with a little help from his friend Gianni Garbo, recorded these songs at a farmer's country house and this calm of the surrounding rural scenery had a lasting effect on the songs. Ageless Calm in Times of War contains references to diverse music genres such as Kraut- and Progressive Rock, post-rock a la Tortoise, but also contemporary ambient sounds. The latter becomes most apparent in water colours which shows some parallels to Letna's...

Night Drone is Steven Deacid from Cologne/Germany, a musician covering a wide range of music in his oeuvre. On Drifts 1-4 , his first release on Petcord, he sends the unsuspecting listener to a moonlit trip into soundscapes of deeply saturated tones blending into another. Constantly changing sound characteristics create a cinematic vision of floating associations without a determined plot. The essence of thoughts is expressed by sparsely arranged tunes that exhibit vivid tone paintings of...

Frontal Grid is the latest electroacoustic work of Nodepet, the anonymous moniker of critically acclaimed composer Olliver Wichmann. Taking his musical achievements to unprecedented levels the four movements gradually progress from concise clarity to blurred haziness, yet maintaining a common thread that ties them together. Pauses and dynamics are strongly accentuated and nicely interact with constantly mutating sequences. Electroacoustic expressionism that can do without multimedia support or...

Giorgos Stefanou's Travelling in Space-Time is an imaginary journey to a future form of civilisation, that will eventually overcome today's weaknesses. One may conclude the driving factor for this search could be related to a religious understanding of salvation, an eventual reward for a troubled life, but that seems to run contrary to the gloomy scenery and its lack of euphoria. Instead there is the conscience of one's vulnerable existence, thrown into a rather hostile environment and a...

In Elati , Giorgos Stefanou's second release on the Petcord netlabel, polarities between piano and forte, acoustic and electic, distance and proximity are the basis for a contrastive electro-acoustic work. The combination soft blurry tones with sharp percussive accents creates an accidental soundtrack of an internal holiday ressort full of subtile tension, abrasiveness, fragile textures and harsh soundwalls. Sudden and gradual changes are pronounced by a huge dynamic range comprised of glassy...

Nodepet's third release Decay presents the paradox of increasing complexity by means of reducing musical themes and a leaner production. Compared to previous works Decay is not a compilation of randomly selected tracks but four related pieces of a whole that provide different perspectives of a common thread. It could be about life or about everything else the listener can associate with it. At first the release starts with friendly ninth chord, but then loses momentum and is swallowed by waves...

Internal Sonic Pathway is the programmatic title of Greek composer Giorgos Stefanou's first release for Petcord which features the works HrznHue and Abstract Concrete. At first patches of fog rise to the sky and give way to windchimes like tone collisions. Scenery change, a wide angle, bird's eye-view: unintelligible announcements, humming transformators and a faint melody fighting against resonant overtones underneath. Brief memories of the beginning, this time extending the tonal range to the...

En Fin Terrible - a pun on the French expression "enfant terrible" and the second offering by Nodepet - is a title which no doubt alludes to an aspect of the artists personality. One senses that this reference is not so much self ascribed, but one incurred not only by the often stifling purviews imposed by one's immediate sociomusical associations, but also a personal need to defy imitation and wax lyrical the idiosyncrasies of self expression. When looking at En Fin Terrible...
